Rorschach, is a large wall installation of glass “prints.”  Each piece in the series has been made by dripping enamel onto a glass sheet and pressing a second sheet onto it to create a mirror image, much like an inkblot. These plates display a range of symmetrical anthropomorphic patterns, with no two exactly alike. The images summon the audience’s internal structures of image processing and recognition.
The Rorschach phycology test was developed in early 1900. The test was used to detect mental disorders. The inkblots don’t depict anything, yet the human mind tries to make sense of something nonsensical and in this process applies known attributes to resembling shapes.
Finding myself in an unfamiliar and chaotic situation earlier this year I started making inkblots as a process of familiarizing myself with something in the hope that the patterns through repetition would start making sense.
